Online publication The Pun has been running for five years, and each year it has a call for contributors, offering opportunities for new and emerging writers and editors to gain practical experience in publishing. From their website: ‘The Pun have a strong commitment to offering opportunities for all writers and editors, regardless of experience.’
There are two types of roles available: either going out and reviewing live comedy shows over the course of the festival, or sub-editing contributions.
Responsibilities will include reviewing, researching, sub-editing, and coming up with editorial content.
Although experience isn’t necessary you’ll need to have excellent English skills and a ‘can-do’, motivated attitude.
These positions are on a voluntary basis, and will last from 30 March until 24 April 2011.
